StrokesPlus is a completely free mouse gesture recognition utility for Windows which allows you to create powerful mouse gestures that save you time. With rocker support, modifiers, and the robust Lua engine built right in, there's virtually no limit to what you can automate.
Traditionally, you begin a mouse gesture by holding down the right mouse button and drawing something, like the letter R for example, then release the right mouse button. This triggers the application to process your drawing and perform the specified action. The most common actions are maximizing/minimizing windows, navigating back/forward, or automated logging into a certain website. However, StrokesPlus takes it to the next level, giving you ultimate control over exactly what happens when your action executes.
The ZIPs and installers will now have these as defined under Hotkeys. If you're already using S+ and want to use these, you'll need to create them yourself. The only difference in functionality is that previously these hotkeys were always active as long as S+ was running (S+ enabled or disabled); where now they will only function if S+ is enabled. I think it's in the best interest of most for S+ to not use hard-coded global hotkeys as they may interfere with some configurations or user preferences. However, that means that they will only work when S+ is active. I do believe if S+ is disabled, it should really be completely disabled; not interfering or intercepting anything other than processing tray icon clicks and standard program window interaction. So I hope this change doesn't upset anyone.
